4chan having a schism is some funny shit to me because I have a good enough memory to remember the last time this happened was over moot banning invasion threads and “jailbait”.

So, you had all of these creepy men utterly furious about not being allowed to post pedophilic material in the site or actively plan invasions in it, so they went utterly mad and ddosed 4chan itself and moved en-masse to shitty knockoff “7chan”, which, latter on, realizing how allowing the gross idiots constituting most of its userbase to post borderline-child porn was a good way to get in legal trouble, started slowly implementing bans on the same things as the “controversy” died down. The same happened for invasions.

I think what’s also funny in this case is the “SJW paranoia” angle

like, they starting using this term to throw at literally anybody with politics they didn’t agree with

and then, because they were accusing so many people of being SJWs, they started thinking that all the people that they applied the label to were in cahoots

and now we’re at the point where channers believe the SJWs are inside the walls

"SJWS SECRETLY RUN 4CHAN" paranoia has been a thing in /v/ for over a fucking year, it’s just that recent events have made that paranoia escalate to utterly ridiculous levels to the point they are actually genuinely thinking tumblr isn’t some teen microblog site but rather a nexus of the SJW conspiracy and that spamming goatse here will Defeat The Degenerate Left Forever and Let Them Retake Their Homeland.

While there are many people out there that disagree with Tommy Sheridan, the issue of independence for the nation is bigger than one man. I’m so glad that Tommy realises this. And you know what, he’s right. While I have always thought that parties with the word “National” in them are generally, by rule of thumb, a bit awful. The SNP’s policies actually put them to the left of Labour. And let’s face it, they’re not nationalist in the sense that they want Scotland just to be for native Scots, they want a Scotland that anyone irrespective of their nationality, ethnicity, sexuality to live here free. They want more affordable childcare, they want money to be spent not on nuclear weapons, but on raising the minimum wage, protecting the NHS and eradicating poverty. This is not nationalism, this is common decency. This is the Scotland that I want. Let’s not split the vote here. I realise that many have joined the Green party and I’ve voted for them myself too. But would there be a better party to raise the profile of Scotland in Westminster than the SNP? I don’t think there would be.
Thoughts?

There is another side to Glasgow today.
After the rioting by a minority group of unionists in Glasgow’s George Square last night, which shamed and embarrassed our wonderful country, a new scene showed its face today.
Several groups of people have now left over 100 bags with donations for Glasgow’s homeless food banks on George Square under peace flags. This is the Glasgow and Scotland that I know and love.
We will continue fighting for a better country. To bring an end to austerity, to food banks, to immoral, illegal nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Glasgow Violence: When Media Bias Goes Too Far 

On Thursday, 85% of the Scottish population turned out to cast their votes in the referendum on independence following days of peaceful demonstrations by Yes voters in the heart of our largest city, Glasgow. 

On Friday, Glasgow was gripped by fear as pro-union fascists rushed George Square, determined to engage in violence and hatred; the loyalists of Glasgow joined by members of the Scottish and English Defence Leagues, and all partly encouraged by Britain First.

Young girls had their Scottish flags torn away from them, women with Yes badges were spat at and called scum, nazi salutes and red hand of Ulster salutes were seen, flares were thrown, and the sectarian edge was on full display with “No Surrender” signs. Assaults were made on those carrying Saltires.

https://vine.co/v/OWPzrhni0Aj/embed

These are not the scenes reported by the BBC news or a number of newspapers who assure us that this was a “clash” between Yes and No voters, following their portrayal of Yes voters as Scottish nationalist mobs who intimidated No voters, despite little evidence to the contrary.

https://vine.co/v/OWU39hp1aJl

In truth, the police had the events of last evening well in hand. Glasgow is no stranger to sectarian trouble (a number of this mob wore Rangers tops), quickly surrounding the group and acting to restrict violence as far as possible as they departed the square and moved elsewhere. Six arrests were made and after a few hours the city was calm once more.

http://youtu.be/t46wPvXpLTs 

But what there was a disturbing lack of was information. News. People in the city and those in the rest of Scotland with friends and family in Glasgow had no idea what was happening. Those on twitter could find no information on whether things had escalated or calmed down, on where was safe and where was not.

https://vine.co/v/OWFlvihxJja

The police described the situation as “handbags”. They’ve dealt with much worse. But to write this off as sectarian violence alone excuses those fascists who travelled to take part. To write it off as only fascists excuses the local loyalists spoiling for a fight.

While the identity of the perpetrators is unknown, the one Scotland newspaper that supported independence – The Herald – had their generator set alight. The Sunday Herald is currently collecting evidence from the night to make a full report in their next edition.

Glasgow is a complicated city with a troubled past, but the level of political engagement across Scotland and within the city during this referendum was unprecedented. And almost entirely peaceful until now. Scotland had shown the world what democracy without war looks like, but while the UK media ignores the dark side of both Glasgow and the union, the international media has carried the most information on events.

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152309438961498

That people in Glasgow, Scotland and the UK had to turn to twitter to get the real information of what was happening is incredible. And while photographs and videos were helpful in illustrating the events, there was no control on validity of information. #GlasgowRiots trended through the night despite the situation being over, while many seemed under the impression that it was Yes voters at fault.

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10202433758517846

Invoking the spirit of sectarianism there was no doubt trouble on both sides of that particular divide, but the swelling of ranks from fascist groups ensured that it was those bearing the Scottish flag or Yes badges that were in danger.

This was no celebration. This was no representation of No voters. These bigots represent no one but themselves. But the media turning a blind eye to this, or insinuating it is no worse than Scottish nationalists throwing an egg is irresponsible. I had friends hiding at home because they were terrified to go out on the streets without the safety of having white skin, with no idea of when the trouble was over.

There are Orange marches planned today in the city. Hopefully these idiots will stay at home. Please stay safe.

GAGGING ORDER OVER UK( v v bad)

californication-of-brutus:

[THIS MAY LOOK BORING BUT PLZ READ ITS IMPORTANT]

(at least if you’re in the uk)

For those not aware, Scotland has recently been going under a Referendum Debate, on whether or not we would like to be an independent country. The vote turned out to be 45% yes and 55% no, meaning we will carry on as a part of the UK. This has not gone down well and riots have broken out in Glasgow, Dundee and other parts of Scotland. 

While this has been going on, being quite a large distraction from other news, Westminster, the UK Parliament in London, has passed a ‘Gagging Order’. This means that while there is an election underway in the UK, no one can say a bad word about the current ruling party at that time. Basically, not one person can voice their opinion via social network or be caught speaking down about the Government. How very democratic. (http://rt.com/uk/189112-gagging-act-uk-undemocratic/)

And a word of advice to those in the UK, particularly Scotland, take a good look at other news channels outside of the UK and see an outsider’s view. A good source, I find, is Russia Today, as linked above. Tending to give impartial views, especially on recent UK politics.

Countries like Russia, North Korea, China and Syria have been demonized and deemed unfit in their views, but taking a good look into their news channels reveals a great amount of common sense, which our news rarely gets. Although many people may have turned off by now but I urge you to at least take a quick look and possibly see a little bit of truth.

The BBC are paid through every UK citizens TV tax to be impartial (unbiased). Which I’m sure most can agree, they are not. It is infuriating that the BBC and the British Government can get away with all of this. Please share.
